JASPER – The first sentencing related to an “Operation Big Brother” arrest took place today in the Dubois County Superior Court. Jason J. Schepers, 35, Birdseye, was sentenced to serve a total of eleven (11) years at the Indiana Department of Correction.

Schepers was arrested on June 5, 2014, along with fifteen (15) other individuals charged with various drug dealing offenses, as part of the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department’s drug raid known as “Operation Big Brother.” Schepers was charged with one (1) Class B felony count of Dealing in Methamphetamine.

Schepers entered into a Plea Agreement with the State of Indiana on September 3, 2014. The Plea Agreement covered the drug dealing charge, as well as a prior case in which Schepers was on probation. The Plea Agreement called for Schepers to be sentenced to one hundred and eighty (180) days at the Dubois County Security Center on his probation revocation matter. It also called for Schepers to be sentenced to ten and one-half (10 ½) years at the Indiana Department of Correction on his dealing in methamphetamine charge.

The remaining fifteen (15) cases associated with the Operation Big Brother raid are still pending and those individuals currently are awaiting trial. Dubois County Prosecutor Kevin Crouse stated that he was pleased with the outcome in Schepers’s case, and he anticipates that the remaining individuals charged also will be convicted and receive significant prison sentences to be served at the Indiana Department of Correction.
